Man! How come I didn’t hear about Resul Pookutty until I saw the academy awards!! For a country who takes pride in Kalpana Chawla, Bobby Jindal and other People of Indian Origin, how come not much PR for Resul and AR Rahman for their Oscar Nominations!

Congrats Resul and Rahman for winning the Oscars!! Rahman takes 2 of the Oscars! Such a wonderful moment!! The proudest was when he said “எல்லா புகழும் இறைவனுக்கே” (All the praise goes to the God!)



  1. Congrats to Rahman!! He was so humble …it was really heartwarming to see such a deserving person win the Oscar. And yes he was looking cute and shy as a teenager.

    I was jumping with Joy! Starting with Golden Globe and ending with Oscar for the season.

  3. Just got up with a grin in my face and the husband said, “go see for yourself.” and shushing a crying baby and dodging a flying toy, got to the laptop. Why am i so happy? Its truly an awesome feeling. And when I read that he has said something in Tamil, I was so thrilled! Oh Man! Btw, as mom would say Anil Kapoor sure has a “vibareedha raaja yogam”!!! 😀
    Oh, did you see “smile pinky” has won the best short documentary? Thats a proud moment too.

  5. That is a statement that he says at every award he gets! And we were expecting an english version of it.. but when he said that he had to say something in tamizh (and not tamil) and said those words.. it truly was awesome! 🙂
